Suns 115, Thunder 109



At 2.7 times the risk, the moneyline is not profitable for the Suns in this matchup.

Against the spread

LEAN THUNDER +6.5 (-105).

The Thunder are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games, 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games following an outright loss and 4-1-1 in their last 6 road games against a team with a winning percentage greater than .600. Playing against a Suns team without F Kevin Durant will help to allow the Thunder to stay in this game.

OKC is 9-5-1 ATS this season as a 5-7-point underdog while Phoenix is just 4-6 ATS as a 5-7-point favorite.


BET UNDER 230.5 (-108).

The Under is 3-0 in the Thunder’s last 3 games and 5-2 in the Suns’ last 7.

Phoenix’s strength is its defense, which ranks 5th in the league for opponent points per game (111.3) and 8th in the league for opponent field goal percentage (46.7). In the last 8 games when they’ve had 3 or more days rest that has been evident; in such games, the Under is 6-2. The Under is also 5-1 in the Suns’ last 6 Friday games.
